Man stomping infant to death killed by police

June 16, 2008


— A crazed man parked on a dark country road Saturday night, took a baby boy from the car seat in his pickup and beat the child to death until a Modesto police officer, dropped on the scene by helicopter, shot the man dead, authorities said.

Passersby calling 911 at 10:13 p.m. PDT described a horrific scene on West Bradbury Road near the intersection of South Blaker Road in rural Stanislaus County. At least one tried to stop the attacker, who swung and slammed the child into the asphalt behind his parked four-door Toyota pickup.

"In the shadows and light it looked like he had hit an animal," said Dan Robinson, the chief of Crows Landing Volunteer Fire Department, who came upon the chaos driving home from a late dinner in Turlock. "As we backed up again, I could see that he had blood on his arms. I could see that it was a small child."

Robinson jumped from his vehicle and confronted the man, who lunged at him. Robinson said the man wasn't screaming and wasn't loud, but was forceful, saying "demons" were in the boy.

A Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department helicopter, flown by a deputy with a Modesto, Calif., police officer in the second seat, was on patrol in the Turlock area. It arrived six minutes after the first 911 call, said Deputy Royjindar Singh, the sheriff's spokesman.

The helicopter landed in a nearby cow pasture and the Modesto police officer jumped out. He drew his service pistol and commanded the man to stop from about 10 feet away from behind a set of electric and barb wire fences. The officer yelled at the passersby to get out of the way. When the man "continued to stomp the child," the officer fired, Singh said.

This tragedy is not unlike killings of infants prescribed by Peter Singer of Princeton University the Peter Ira W. Decamp Professor of Bioethics in the University Center for Human Values."...he is the world's foremost proponent of the legitimacy of infanticide. Thus, writing on page 186 in Practical Ethics, he supported the right of parents to kill a newborn with hemophilia in order to make life easier for a hypothetical, yet-to-be-born sibling:When the death of a disabled infant will lead to the birth of another infant with better prospects of a happy life, the total amount of happiness will be higher if the disabled infant is killed. The loss of happy life for the first infant is outweighed by the gain of a happier life for the second. Therefore, if killing the hemophiliac infant has no adverse effect on others, it would, according to the total view, be right to kill him.It should be noted that the disability of the infant isn't why he can be killed, but rather, his view that infants are not persons."

I agree. The jerk should have suffered more."Robinson said the man wasn't screaming and wasn't loud, but was forceful, saying "demons" were in the boy."That's what religious extremism will get you. Nut cases who think a baby has demons.

how very sad, very very sad. he should have died the same death that poor child did. blindfold him block his ears so he cant see or hear anything coming then just beat the life out of him. the chicks from los angeles - well an eye for an eye - they should have done to them what they did to that poor little boy. we dont have harsh enough penalties for these kind of horrid people.

Of course if one is not going to outright kill a child then there's always an alternative practiced by the culture of death. Here's a recent example: Police arrest lesbians for 'torturing' boy, 5Forced him to put his hands on hot stove, burned his body, genitals with cigarettes
